Donny “Drano” Harrell is a record producer and executive, father, entrepreneur, humanitarian, and television personality. Known as both a smooth talker and tireless worker, Donny earned his first record label deal in 1991, and from that point on there was no turning back.
In 1992, Donny created GoodFellas Entertainment where he collaborated with music industry icons like Mo Ostin, Michael Ostin, L.A. Reid, Sylvia Rhone, and the late greats Jheryl Busby and Andre Harrell. A major steppingstone for Goodfellas Entertainment was when Donny executive-produced one of BET's highest-rated reality TV shows in 2008 called Brothers 2 Brutha. Donny’s passion extends beyond the microphone, as he has also owned and managed a number of restaurants throughout the LA area over the years.
Currently, Donny is cohost with Mike Hill on Fox Soul’s barbershop-style talk show, The Mike and Donny Show, which airs every weeknight at 8pm PT / 11pm ET.
